MSU honors outstanding ag leaders at 2011 Ag Appreciation Weekend Oct. 28-29

Diana Alkire of Bozeman, Dan Lake of Ronan and Richard Owen of Geraldine have been named 2011 Outstanding Ag Leaders by the College of Agriculture at Montana State University (MSU).

All three will be honored at 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 28, at the Celebrating Agriculture Social in the Strand Union Building ballrooms on the MSU campus. The public is invited to attend.

The Outstanding Ag Leader Award is a statewide award given to individuals or couples who are well-respected in the agricultural community, with accomplishments that impact many; have a lifetime of achievement in agriculture; are industry leaders or upcoming innovative producers; and are actively involved in the agricultural community in Montana. A selection committee comprised of three agriculture representatives, a College of Agriculture faculty member and a student, reviews the applications each year, said Jeff Jacobsen, dean of the College of Agriculture. This award has been presented by the College of Agriculture since 1999. A list of past awardees can be found at http://ag.montana.edu/development/outstanding.htm.

“Montana is a very special place that is exemplified by its people whom are involved in agriculture, and specifically, our diverse awardees,” Jacobsen said.

“These leaders have been highly engaged with faculty, staff and students across departments and over decades in the MSU College of Agriculture,” Jacobsen said. “When I think about their home communities – Bozeman, Ronan, and Geraldine – it reinforces the real fabric of the people and their core values. Their achievements are certainly notable, but the stunning aspect of each individual is their life-long engagement to advancing agriculture.”
